A farmer was selling a bag of ripe plums for 2 euros, he was quiet a character, and old lady was minding the souvernir stall, and then there is the cafe, many locals where sitting there enjoying a chat and coffee.

My wife and I set out to find this monastery in the mountains on our way to the baths of Aphrodite. We found it a couple of kilometres after the stunning and peaceful Agia Moni Monastery and were highly disappointed. Possibly due to the fact there seemed to be a school trip visiting and it was extremely noisy and locals... More

There are so many churches and monasteries to visit in the region. This one is attractive and worth including in your list of monasteries to visit.

The monastery is a nice recluse in the mountains, slightly off the most beaten tracks in Cyprus. You have nice views from there. Make sure to have a look at the icons being produced here - they're impressive.

This is a lovely place and off the tourist trail. It is a historical monastery with stunning views. There is a small cafe at hand.

Went here as part excursion through Troodos mountains. As its been said, bare shoulders and shorts above the knee are not allowed, so you'll have to wear a light robe available if necessary. Visited the Byzantine museum. Time constraints meant didn't get chance to fully enjoy all the wonderful historical artefacts. Nice shops close to the monestary. Amazed at all... More

This Monastery is very small and it seems only one person lives there now. But we were able to buy fresh fruit by the road side there and have a drink, other wise nothing great to report.

The Monastery is in the cool mountains of Pafos forest and has a long history. It also produces fine wines so it is a great combination for nature lovers, those interested in ecclesiastical history and architecture and lovers of good wine.
